I was given a Histopad which is kind of your own personal iPad. There are many different languages available and when you hold the Histopad over a particular circle in the room it show you what the room would have looked like in the 1400's, 1800's and today. Lots of history about the different kings and queens, architects, painters etc. There is also a film to see in German with English subtitles. Very well thought out and put together.

The castle is definitely worth a visit. We combined visit of the castle with the visit of the Meissen porcelain factory. It was a wonderful full-day trip from Dresden. The castle is imposing from the outside. There are many rooms open to public on several floors. The walls are beautifully painted, for the rest the rooms are bare with no old furniture, tapestry, pictures etc. In some rooms there is a modern, interactive exhibition and it really takes some time to see it all. Buying a combined ticket for 11 euro also allows you to see the cathedral. Next to the cash-desk of the castle there is a small, but cosy cafe.

Not going to lie, the castle was fairly boring. Not much really that captivated me; i've been to better castles. But the cafe was great and the slipper room at the start was hella fun, even though that's not really the point. Wouldn't visit again if i was ever in Meissen, but glad i did it.

This is really beautiful place, the first castle in Germany constructed and used as a palace. It has rich history, very important for Saxony and for Germany. In 1710 the first European porcelain manufacture was founded in the castle. Now you can enjoy beautiful interiors and learn about the history. As the castle is built at a top of the hill, you can also enjoy breathtaking view over the Elbe valley. The time nedded for a tour is 2-3 hours.
